...hope all is well!
We have had some roughness in the Huey Household the last week or so... a very aggressive stomach virus hit all of us...nuff said. As usual, I was the 'last in line' to get it, and I am somewhat recovered, but still a bit 'groggy'... so... anyway, we're all on the mend...
I will get back into reviewing Gingerfilms here soon (maybe this Stage Door gig is what I need to get 'jump-started')... no real excuse, so get ready!!! Again, not sure about the 'mega-screen-caps' HueyTreatment at this point, since, let's face it, the films coming up will have MONDO Ginger face time...um, not a BAD thing, duh, but a time-consuming one... which kinda delays the whole process. So, I'll just put out the 'main review', and throw in a few 'small cap sequences' here and there...just to keep the spirit of that alive. And once the reviews are finis, THEN I could go back and create some 'full-blown' 'HueyTreatments'...which i truly LOVE to do, so... again...stay tuned.
Until then, hope to see y'all over on FB!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
